How is everyone sleeping?

Hey, how has everyone been sleeping? Have you had any difficulty sleeping or do you have any tips for getting a good nights sleep with a stoma? 

  • For the last two years since I had my surgery I have been up every night to empty.  Now for some reason the last couple of months I have actually been able to get through the night without getting up.  

    I don't sleep through but I judge that I can go another hour or two without having to get up.  It would probably be better to just get up and empty and not wake every hour or so, but somehow I would rather stay in bed.  I don't sleep but I don't get up.  A little bit stupid, I guess.

    I now have a new game.  I sleep with my phone under my pillow and I look at it several times during the night to see what time it is and if I can justify making a cup of tea.  Now I guess the time before I look.  Simple things.
